Study finds Napster use may cut into record sales


"...A study released today by record industry retail tracker SoundScan shows declining CD sales at stores near universities, and some are pointing fingers at online music-swapping software such as Napster.

In those stores, SoundScan data shows that record sales have actually dropped 4 percent in the past two years.
